Abstract The article focuses on the importance of understanding fire ecology. This understanding includes the direct and indirect effects of fire disturbance on plants and animals. Aside from ecology, another science disciplines are investigating the impact of landscape fire disturbance on hydrological systems as part of the emerging field of ecohydrology. An understanding on the effects of landscape fire on ecohydrological systems is needed especially with the threat of global environmental changes including the increased frequency and intensity of landscape fires.
